Liberation artwork
4 April 1994


On April 4, 1994 ‘Liberation’ was released as a single. “The song”, says Neil, “is trying to reconcile the idea in a relationship that you are liberated, because you feel fabulous because of the love, with the idea that you also feel constricted and obligated. It’s one of my ‘live for today’ songs”. In the video, the fourth of their computer enhanced collaborations with director Howard Greenhaugh, the Pet Shop Boys appear almost entirely as computer generated entities. During April a virtual reality ride based around the video tours Britain’s major cities.
